Teaching by Series: Role Call
Role Call, Part 4: Don’t Go There
While none of us have perfect families or perfect homes, dwelling only on past mistakes or future fears can hijack God’s perfect blueprint for the family. But as grace covers our faults in this area, submission and humility are required to move toward biblical roles in the context of family relationships.Watch / Listen
Role Call, Part 3: In the Church
As we continue in our series on gender roles, Pastor Mike looks at roles in the context of the body of Christ – the church. The second half of 1 Timothy 2 has often been misinterpreted and misused. While scripture prohibits women from pastor/elder roles in context of the local church, the sweeping narrative of scripture provides clarity – men and women, while different in role, are equal in value before God.Watch / Listen
Role Call, Part 2: Yea, Hath God Said?
Why was Eve deceived in the garden, and not Adam? This is not a question of gullibility, but of vulnerability. In this message, Pastor Mike looks at the sensitive topic of biblical submission and what it means for women who follow Christ.Watch / Listen
Role Call, Part 1: Adam, Where Art Thou?
In Scripture, God lays out clear, distinct roles for both men and women in regard to family, church and society. Yet, perhaps more than any other time in history, these roles have become clouded, distorted and abused. This series will take a biblical look at this very sensitive issue and how we are to respond to God’s wisdom in gender roles. This first message deals with the man’s call from God to headship, initiation and servant-leadership.Watch / Listen
